<aside> ➕ Sourced from Trash is for Tossers


Here are some great textile recycling programs and resources to help you recycle anything from socks, to athletic shoes, to bras, old fleeces and everything in-between:

Terracycle Fabrics and Clothing Zero Waste Box: Purchase a box to fill with clothing and fabric to ship to Terracycle to be repurposed.

The Bra Recyclers: An organization that will find a way to recycle, reuse or repurpose bras. You can find a drop-off station or mail old bras directly to them.

Council for Textile Recycling: Find clothing donation drop-offs and textile recycling resources all across the US. Keep in mind the donation suggestions might not recycle “unwearable” textiles. I recommend calling the individual recommended locations before making a drop-off.

GemText: Free textile recycling based in the Pacific Northwest.

Soles 4 Souls: A national shoe recycling program.

Green Tree: Free textile recycling drop-offs located at specific NYC farmers’ markets.

Wearable Collections: NYC-based clothing recycling pick up service.

Secondary Materials and Recycled Textiles: An online platform that will help you find the nearest textile recycling outlets near you.
